Pinar Ogun in “The Syrian Baker” at Farnham Maltings

Pinar Ogun stars in “The Syrian Baker” at Farnham Maltings. 


With almost 5% of the world’s population on the move, desperate to get away from trouble, this is a story of those who have decided to go home despite the state of their country. This show is a human story about coming home, knowing where you belong, and how small actions can make a big difference in one’s life and in re-building a community. It is a piece about humanity, hope and courage.

Told with affection, irrepressible humour and bread – because without bread nothing else will happen – this is about how we all have so much more in common than we realise.

From the company that brought you Brilliance and The Iranian Feast, Farnham Maltings has created a new play about the world for village halls.

Written by Kevin Dyer and Directed by Gavin Stride.
